Maxxess eFusion plays central role at Dubai’s Bluewaters Island

Caesars DubaiThe Maxxess eFusion security management platform has been chosen to provide seamless integration and easy management of security, safety and site management systems on Dubai's Bluewaters Island

The company stated in a statement that the management of Bluewaters wanted to find the most efficient way to integrate all security, safety and building management functions into one easy operating system, with particular emphasis on a solution that would be efficient to use, cost-effective to maintain and robust to move forward.

The eFusion platform was identified as the best fit because it uses versatile, open-technology software, the company added.

Omnix International, one of the integrators involved in the project, said eFusion was particularly easy to work with, offering the advantages of a modular, building block approach and allowing maximum freedom to integrate, customise and adapt to future needs.

Henry Azoury, senior security design and engineering manager at Omnix International, commented, “Thanks to its compatibility with leading surveillance, intruder, access and fire detection systems, eFusion proved to be a highly efficient integration technology for the Bluewater project.”

The Bluewaters eFusion platform includes full integration with an ASSA ABLOY hospitality system. It allows a unified system approach, with a single registration protocol for both front and back-of-house access. The solution enables centralised management of room safes, mini-bars and cupboards and control of all alarm transactions.

eFusion integration with the Zenitel Stantaphone IP Intercom System ensures that video and transaction data are automatically called up in the Bluewaters control room as soon as any user presses a call button.

With easy integration into the SeeTec Video Management System, eFusion also allows seamless control of all cameras. In addition, cameras are connected to the door access system, with video pop-up triggered by predefined events. The solution also provides operators with complete PTZ control, playback and video functionality.

ID badging and building management systems are also fully integrated, enabling easy operation and control of a wide range of functions, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

“For maximum efficiency, there is no need to switch between different management systems and the eFusion platform is easy to work with, allowing full benefit from integration with individual systems,” concluded Lee Copland, managing director EMEA, Maxxess.
